Looks fine to me.

On the subject of style though, two things:
  - I really dislike things like LPDWORD and LPD3DXMESH. For one,
there's the issue that "const LPDWORD" doesn't do what you want, so
you'd need something like "LPCDWORD", which doesn't exist. The other
issue is that unless typedefs are used for some kind of abstraction,
like e.g. uint32_t, they're just obfuscation. I.e., "typedef type
*LPTYPE;" just hides that "LPTYPE" is a pointer, and "typedef
enum/struct x x;" just hides that "x" is a struct or enum.
  - "There’s a standard naming scheme for C, and it’s all lower case
with underscores as separators."
